currently have. >> max hoffman was in lexington for that speech. foreign policy was never at the heart of romney's message. he has always been about the economy. what did we learn about him here? are we looking at a new conservative republican? -- neo-conservative republican? >> they avoided the name "george w. bush" similar to ronald reagan's foreign-policy. they do not want to be in his corner. at the same time, they want to take advantage of the traditional republican strength. they believe they are tougher when it comes to national security. he's trying to solve that dilemma by saying he wants to avoid war by spending more on the military. he does not want to scare off any independent voters but at the same time he wants to satisfy his conservative clients. >> let's look at the broader campaign. last week, he got a big boost from winning that the raid against obama. the polling numbers also looking better for him now. is the obama campaign worried? >> nervous, there is no question, but as there has been some significant change in some of the most important swing states, ohio and flori

that i was interested in. nobody mentioned anything about foreign policy, which i consider my number one issue. for that reason, i have not picked a party this year. i was a democrat in my younger days. i agreed with our social values. however, in getting more experienced, i understood that you cannot run a country only on taxing the people. you have to have a system that is going to produce wealth at only consume wealth. i became a republican. i have great difficulty with the republicans as well as the foreigns' focus on policy. i do not like war. i don't think we have any business being in the middle east. i follow the persuasions of ron paul but that went nowhere. obama came across last night like a college professor. he was very didactic. you could almost see him shaking his finger at the graduates whose minds would be so easily swayed. didn't work with mitt romney and an intelligence audience. i agree jim lehrer did not enforce any time limits. why do two intelligent people need a moderator like that? they should follow their own rules. host: just how the candidates out there an

several points. one of them spoke to foreign policy. you have touched a little bit on that. how would you describe your own at form policy approach? guest: we should not -- we should involve ourselves diplomatically, but that is really it. we should be the shining beacon on the hill. but our military interventions where we are going in and we are determining another foreign dictator -- we are replacing one foreign dictator with another? our foreign aid has not been helping other countries, but propping up other governments. we are finding insurgents in syria? and a quarter of those are supposed to be al qaeda? did we do this in afghanistan? pinki -- and didn't we do this in afghanistan? didn't we ultimately bankroll osama bin laden? we are making enemies of the united states. the strohm strikes, yes, we hit the target, but we white out another quarter block. -- we wipe out another quarter block. we are killing civilians in this country in that were ostensibly there to help. we're continually making more and more enemies. if is no surprise that the unrest in the middle east is occurrin

all in assaulting romney. >> and i think that biden is going to want to talk foreign policy and i think the polls have shown that the president's doing good on that, not as well as he was, that gap has narrowed with the events in the middle east, but still, we killed bin laden and bringing troops home. it will be interesting how team romney respond on foreign policy. >> i don't know if he tries to go too hard on foreign policy in big trouble because of what happened in benghazi, ryan will use that against him and i think damage him very badly. >> but ryan is a rookie on foreign policy, that's not his area of expertise and i've heard him and he sounds more callow than on the budget in some of these things. and it's interesting to see if he's done a full emerges on that and does pretty well. >> i'd like to see them get into the battle what happened with the super committee and the deficit last year. joe biden said last week paul ryan walked away from the committee and the details would be fun to listen to. >> ryan has a good answer to that, how the president sabotaged it. more to co

underpinned by an aggressive foreign policy. a reception hall built in 661 carries an inscription running from riser to tread recounting palenque's battles against calakmul, a large kingdom to the northeast. relief sculptures of captives flank the stairways. palenque and calakmul vied for control of the rich fertile tabasco plain that stretched north from palenque toward the gulf of mexico. when the kings of palenque sat in the palace and looked out across the tabasco plain all the way to the gulf of mexico, it was the region that they dominated. and from that region, they were able to collect cotton and cacao, two principal sources of wealth. (narrator) pakal died in 683 and was succeeded by his oldest son kan bahlam-- his name means snake jaguar-- who reigned until 702. he continued to expand the glory of palenque. there is no other place where we find, for example, the use of parallel corbels as early as we see them here. and one of the things that this does is make the buildings inherently more stable. these buildings have stood the test of time better than at almost any other site be
